A comment titled: dogs in response to a report titled: Walker Hunting Dog Found

More deer are killed over a pile of corn or food plots then in front the dogs. I am a still and dog hunter check the statistic of clubs who dump corn and clubs who run dogs . My opinion on it if your going to stop dog hunting then you might as well just stop hunting for everyone fair is fair .

A comment titled: my two cents in response to a report titled: deer numbers

The state could care less about population numbers all they care about is money the more hunters in the woods the more money they make . Why do you think they came out with crossbow, primitive weapon which now days are just like a rifle . They make it easier for the average joe that never hunted to pick up a gun and start hunting. Huntr i agree with you i travel for work used to see deer by grosstete 30 deer some nights the same goes for the stretch of interstate that runs thru manchac wma now your lucky if you see 0ne since the new doe regulations . I dont know about most but i love to hunt and watch deer could care less about a doe or spike if a deer isnt 4 to 5 yrs i dont even waste the strenght to pick up gun. True management starts with age thats the reason you see so many big deer killed in la . Maybe wlf aught to emplement a 3 deer limit two buck and a doe or vice versa 6 is just to many. I learned one thing in the last 12 years on my lease 6pts or better shows good results after the third year wlf pulled it and went with the doe a day now we dont have many deer left. Dont shoot does after the second week of dec and you wont kill the heard out. Everyone will have there own opinions on this issue not many will agree .

If he survived the season he will be a nice shooter next season.

A comment titled: season in response to a report titled: New deer-hunting season dates for the Atchafalaya Basin

solution get ride of everyone at the lwdf but enforcement there the only ones who bring in revenue . The money saved from this should be used to restock the deer heard . Another solution cut the deer limit in half who needs six deer in the freezer. just my two cents tired of my tax dollars paying salaries to people who make wreckless decisions. If you want bigger racks killing the does off isnt the solution letting them grow to six years or better . Plant summer feed plots make sure the deer are fed until the grasses come back after a hard winter . I know i have hunted morganza for nine years now . It was great before they got rid of the six points or better and implimented the doe a day . I used to c three to five deer a hunt now your lucky if you see that all year . I wish they would close doe season all together for at least two years maybe more .

A comment titled: 3 in response to a report titled: A MUST READ FOR AREA 6 HUNTERS!!!!

I hunt two leases in area 6 One is north and the other south . In the south we use dogs its swamp and hard hunting the north is still only where guys feed repeatedly . We have a 3 on one side rule in the north and anything goes south. I can tell you this in the south we allow one doe per member we have plenty of does we only killed 16 deer this year with 25 members of the deer killed 6 were doe the rest buck. In the north 2 does per member you are lucky to buy a deer there the last few years .Over the last years we havent killed over 15 deer in the north lease in the last 4 years . I have pictures of plenty of bucks but by the time the rut starts there arent many does left to breed our heard has been shrinking ever since they did away with the six point or better experiment and added the doe a day till the end of season . I will say this i think the dog days are all but almost over for good before to long the anti hunter will take the still hunt away to . If hunters dont stick together our heritage will be gone.

A comment titled: 2 cents in response to a report titled: A MUST READ FOR AREA 6 HUNTERS!!!!

I am all for it. I dont think its gonna make a difference we dont do anything but kill does until the rut starts anyways. I hunt in the middle of this area and if they dont go back to the old doe days you can hang up deer hunting period. shooting does til the end of season does nothing but kill your heard especially after the middle of december .

I believe the fence is there to keep the hogs out.

A comment titled: would b nice in response to a report titled: 6 Point or better for LA

I think it would work but it already got shot down was in trial for three years in point coupee parish supposed to be a 5 year experiment . But to many people complained they couldnt kill any deer and they dissposed of it . I can tell you this the last year i could sit in my stand everyday and watch 4 to 5 small bucks feeding . after they disosed of the experiment they came out with this doe a day and now i sit in my stand for countless hours and dont c anything the heard is killed out bc most n my club will shoot brown its down. The state has no managment skills at all and we should get rid of our biologist and save the money to buy deer from farms and start restocking . Killing does after the second week in december will do nothing but kill your offspring for the next year. One day our hunting might get back to where it used to be but i seriously doubt it .

A comment titled: My two cents . in response to a report titled: Let the discussion begin....

If you wanna c more deer go back to the doe days that we used to have no killing does after the first week of december . One of the clubs i hunt have killed the does out bucks dont have anything to chase during the rut . No does no yearlings equals no deer . I also hunt in a lease where we run dogs all swamp after the hurricane we found countless dead yearlings couldn't flee the water from hurricane gustav. We didnt c the numbers in deer in this lease either that we did last year hurricanes do more damage than we think.
